We’re delighted to announce that eight University of Sunderland in London academics have been awarded their Postgraduate Certificates (PGCert) in Academic Practice. 

The group of full-time and associate lecturers teach across business, management, finance and public health courses. 

The academics 

A PGCert in Academic Practice is a master’s level qualification focusing on expanding teaching skills in higher education. 

Emmanuel Oghasanine, Lecturer in Business, Management and Finance “The changing nature of work and the world in which we live, makes knowledge a key requirement for success. Studying the PGCert Higher Education has given me grounding in advanced teaching techniques and practices that will help me deliver knowledge in new and engaging ways.” 

The skills and experience our lecturers gained on the course will have a direct impact on the quality of teaching at the University. 

Atonye Endeley, Associate Lecturer in Top-Up Business “Having a PGCert qualification as a lecturer puts a seal on my practical skills and knowledge as well as helping me to gain recognition in my field.” 

We’re excited to see them put what they’ve learned into practice in the classroom as we introduce a blended education approach combining in-person teaching with online classes.  

Alongside their new degrees, the academics have also become Fellows of AdvanceHE, demonstrating a commitment to learning and teaching in higher education.
